If you're someone for whom the love translates to a luscious plate of food, you're at the right place. Today, we will walk you through a recipe that is as delightful as it is heartwarming — a combination of homemade Chia Jam and Overnight Oats.
This delightful recipe is not just about filling the stomach. It's about enjoying the little pleasures of the summer, filled with the sweet sunny nostalgia of strawberries.
What You'll Need
Here's a quick rundown of all the ingredients that you're going to need:
- 100 g of fresh or frozen strawberries
- 2 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 40 g of Gluten-Free Rolled Oats (or Porridge 6 Seeds)
- 100 ml of your favourite milk
- 1 tablespoon of Granola Nuts & Seeds
Crafting the Chia Jam
The first part of this lovely recipe is the delicious Chia Jam.
Here's how you can make it:
- Take a small saucepan and start simmering your strawberries until they begin to soften and release their juice.
- Once you see the mixture starting to boil, turn of the heat and add in your chia seeds. Stir this mixture and let it sit for a few minutes.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool down. As it cools, it will thicken, turning into a rich, jam-like texture.
Making the Overnight Oats
Once your Chia Jam is ready, the next part of the recipe is the Overnight Oats.
Follow these steps:
- Combine 40g of Gluten-Free Rolled Oats with 100 ml of your chosen milk and a drizzle of honey in a bowl and stir well.
- Add 2 tablespoons of your homemade Chia Jam to cover the oats mixture.
- Cover your bowl and let the mixture rest overnight in the refrigerator. This process allows the ingredients to soak and flavours to blend, creating a creamy, flavourful breakfast ready to be served in the morning.
